As a culbimation for our debate clubs for 2016-17 academic year IDEA UK ran the iDebate Youth Debate in the Atlee Suite in the Houses of Parliament. College and school students from our clubs debated whether young people should be granted the vote at 16 and whether education should be mandatory up to degree level. The debates were chaired by Michel Massih QC and IDEA UK thanks the generous support of Hackney Giving for supporting the programme in 2017.
